Afghan Sesame seeds -Easy to Grow.(100 Organic Fresh seeds) Can stored up to 5yrs


Sesame seeds are tiny, flat oval seeds with a nutty taste and a delicate, almost invisible crunch. They come in a host of different colors, depending upon the variety, including white, yellow, black and red.

Sesame seeds are highly valued for their high content of sesame oil, an oil that is very resistant to rancidity. Sesame seeds are the main ingredients in both tahini and the Middle Eastern sweet treat, halvah. Open sesame--the famous phrase from the Arabian Nights--reflects the distinguishing feature of the sesame seed pod, which bursts open when it reaches maturity. The scientific name for sesame seeds is Sesamun indicum.

Sesame seeds are a very good source of the minerals copper and manganese. They are also a good source of magnesium, calcium, iron, phosphorus, vitamin B1, selenium, and zinc. In addition, sesame seeds are a good source of both dietary fibre and monounsaturated fat
Afghani Sesame is a very early maturing, dependable cultivar that likes hot weather.Up to 3' tall, it produces an abundance of seed pods that burst open when ripe, with 80-100 tan seeds per pod. The tillers are candelabra- like and are delicately, strikingly beautiful.An annual herb grown for its edible seeds in long pods. Tropical and heat loving, it thrives wherever cotton can be raised. Dried seeds taste nutty; their flavor is dramatically increased by toasting. Seeds are dry roasted and used whole in cooking or ground and used as a paste for flavor. Used extensively in Asian, East Indian and Mediterranean cuisines

Sesame, or Sesamum indicum, is a tender annual plant grown for its oilseeds. . Sesame is one of the oldest cultivated plants in the world, originating in Babylon and Assyria more that 4,000 years ago.

Easy to Grow It is a beautiful plant to add to your ornamental gardens. The sesame plant will grow up to three to four feet tall with large, textured leaves, and produce attractive white, bell-shaped flowers about an inch long in summer. These flowers resemble foxglove blooms and attract bees and butterflies in the gardens. After booming, seed capsules about 1 to 1.5 inches long will develop on flower stalks.

The seeds ripen in the early fall and need to be harvested when seed capsules are dry on stalks, but before the seed capsules split on the plants. There are several varieties of sesame seeds available; off-white, brown, grey and black. Some of them produce light pink flowers, instead of pure white.

As a high-value food crop, sesame is used as a whole seed in baking and cooking and for the cooking oil extracted from the seed. The dried seeds have a nutty flavor that is enhanced upon roasting.

Viability of sesame seeds is approximately five years after dried and properly stored at room temperature in air-tight containers. Freezing is not recommended for storing sesame seeds because they tend to get damaged in extremely cold temperature.

Sow seeds directly in the ground after the last frost in early spring. Sesame requires full sun..
